About Lost Forest Games

Boilerplate
Lost Forest Games is an indie game microstudio; Developing Beyond finalist; and the creator of Winter Hall. Our horror is an English horror – based on the landscape, history and culture of England. It’s based on the fear of death, isolation, and dark acts from history. Think of the Folk Horror of The Wicker Man, Penda’s Fen or The Stone Tape – and the folk horror of Alan Garner or the ghost stories of M. R. James.
